And finally some 6mm French

Bonjour tout les monde,

Aujourd'hui some French infantry. This was a tester, and I think it worked out great. :-) The figures are from Adler, remember it is 6mm (admittedly Adler is on the big end of 6mm but still tiny)

Today's fox

Finally an update worthy of my blog!

After being distracted by some real life things and even some Warhammer 40k *boo hiss boo* I have managed to paint something real!

A single team of German infantry for Flames of war :-)

I also managed to finish 4 bases of 6mm Cuirassiers for my Napoleonic project, when they are based and  gotten their label I will take some pictures of those too.

The lone Panzerjäger..

Finished my second objective, it came with the old Grenadierkompanie box set - finally finished painting it. Will fit in nicely with the rest of the force I think, sadly this will be my only update this weekend.

Pimp my ride

Finished all halftracks that are needed in my current Mid-War Panzergrenadier company. These last four I finally finished where bought around 2008, together with my platoon of Panzer III J tanks. Pretty good to finally see them painted in a stardard I find acceptable.

The lot still need passengers & decals - but I don't have those.

Sonderkraftfahrzeug bereit!

I have a painted German Panzergrenadier company for Flames of War, but my painting standard went up since when I finished that so I started painting a lot of German stuff without the rush of getting an army ready to play.

Anyway - finished some halftracks tonight. And had a single 8-rad to finish too, they still need decals and passengers - but I don't have those lying around anymore.
My painting style is fairly cartoony on these vehicles, because I want them to really pop when on the table. The infantry is also painted with a fairly high contrast (and fat highlights).

Halftracks, grey!

 Heavy recon, also grey!
 Platoon command halftrack, with something to break up all the grey :-)

Scientific management

Today was a fairly productive day, painting wise!

First up, another mercenary

Next up the NAC soldiers. They are actually fairly quick to paint and look nice in a group I think. I painted this bunch all at the same time, doing the same part in the same colour every time. It wasn't as much fun as painting character miniatures, but every universe needs grunts. 
I also didn't spend a lot of time on the highlights or the faces, just enough to make them interesting up close & looking good on the table.

 The whole gang together, I'm happy with the progress these last three weeks! What do you think?
Next up, maybe more NAC, perhaps their robotic support or get started on the L-UNSC?

Also I have to start thinking about basing & storing these guys properly, because they are currently bunched in a small Feldherr bag together with my Necromunda Escher and it's full. Advice?

Last for today

Finished some more miniatures tonight, here they are:

And a groupshot of the whole family, if you look closely you can see that I'm still trying out a lot of different techniques. Still doesn't look too out of place all together.

Now for a beer and a movie!

Autumn update

The Ground Zero Games order arrived and I got started painting some stuff.

First up a renegade/mercenary/armed civilian, quick and easy.

Some kind of big mutant, I got a load more of these and this one was a lot of fun to paint.

First NAC - will be some kind of marine in my universe. I don't know if I am happy with this one. The colours are really bland and because the face is hidden the entire miniature looks a little boring. The golden visor and red/white shoulderpad I added later to make it a little more interesting..

Anyways, 2 more mutants and a mercenary on the painting desk for tonight.

Engineering reporting!

Todays harvest, simple mechanic.

Not unhappy about this one, a little simple perhaps.. Next up a few mercenaries.

Ordering madness!

I have ordered a bunch of 15mm figures from Ground Zero Games:

- Colonists, lots of colonists
- Alien mercenaries, two packs - for something fun!
- L-UNSC, best looking sci-fi infantry imo (lots)
- NAC infantry, the real grunts (lots)

No vehicles yet, maybe next month. Will have to compare the finished miniatures to what fits and looks good.

Tonight I'll get to painting some more miniatures, starting with a technician in overalls. It's good to unwind after another very busy week.

Corporate interests

I have painted another miniature from the characters pack, this time it's the doctor. I've painted him so he can be a VIP.

Mr Heisenberg doesn't look pleased.

A really productive day it has been! Now to clean my desk and get ready for monday.

This is madness.

Today is a really productive day for me it seems! Did three more sci-fi dudes from start to finish! All from Ground Zero Games.

First up from the Ravager pack B

Also from Ravager pack B

From the characters pack, I put more effort into this one

 All three together, noticeably more effort on the middle one but all will look good on the table!

Anyways, that was fun! I have one more I would like to finish tonight, the doctor from the characters pack.
